wheelchair shawty

Entertainment has been argued from Aristotle through Nietzsche and likely always will be.

Southern rappers, D'Money N Smoove are bumpin’ the boundaries with their latest song / dance / video “Wheelchair Shawty”

Reactions will likely range from “disrespect” through “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. I suspect the intention is nothing more than dancing and making money.

Watching it as someone who has pushed a wheelchair for decades and would never allow anyone to ‘diss’ Patti for using a wheelchair because of her Multiple Sclerosis, I confess I was slack jawed at first but … (and go ahead and beat me, whip me, and make me write bad checks) by the end I was up and doing my best old white guy impression of the wheelchair shawty. And that is an image you do not want to see. J
“wheel wheel wheel let it go
wheel wheel wheel let it go
Wheelchair Shawty”

  1. If I did moves like that, I think I wouldn't be able to move for a week :)

    What would really be neat is they took some of the money they made from the song and donated it to organizations that help people in wheelchairs or organizations that potentially can find a cause of an illness so someone is spared being in a wheelchair. Now that would be something to dance about!
